Room for 6
From the outside, the red clapboard planks add color and charm to Idle Shores, inviting guests to step inside and get comfortable. Bright and airy, the living room is the first space you will explore, offering cheerful mint-green walls that complement the soft gray sofas and the white planked accent wall that holds a brick fireplace and a state-of-the-art television. Signs of the beach surround you, hinting at its proximity with beachy paintings and the occasional starfish adorning the walls. The kitchen of Idle Shores, however, is a thoroughly modern space containing upgraded appliances, stone countertops, and a beautifully patterned glass tile backsplash that offers a dramatic contrast to the painted white cabinets. The dining room is open to both the kitchen and living area and features a large farmhouse style table perched under a wood beaded chandelier. These spaces are designed to make family and friends feel comfortable and welcomed and offer proof that vacation homes are more than just a place to rest your head. They are, in fact, an integral part of your vacation experience, and Idle Shores is destined to be just that.
At the back of the house, a secondary seating area—this one filled with comfortable sofas the hue of the nearby sandy beaches—offers a great place for quiet conversation or to play a game of charades on a chilly Cape Cod night. Outside, a large grassy yard surrounds the cottage, and offers more places to sit and relax; a table and chairs are placed never to the barbecue grill on one side of the home and on the other, a large outdoor sofa and fire pit is where guests will gather to laugh and chat at the end of every day. An outdoor shower helps keep the sand from the beach outside where it belongs. Both bedrooms of Idle Shores are peaceful retreats, one offering a plush queen bed draped in white bedding and the other providing two twin beds. Because this sweet escape is dog friendly, the entire family can enjoy a peaceful respite on Cape Cod!
